BOOK: Seduction and Snacks (Chocolate Lovers #1)
My Rating: 4 1/2 stars
Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he’s asleep) toddler a better life.
When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time.
With Carter’s undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire’s panic that her stretch marks and slim to none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.
MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT
This book it’s just great , there’s not other word about it , it made me laugh so hard from he first page on, it was funny , smart and very truthful at times , no sugar-coating anything in here.
Claire met Carter at a frat party , and they instantly clicked, so much so, that she felt it was time to surrender her V card to someone, and who better than him?? he was gorgeous, nice, and funny , they even shared the same taste in movies.
“He was so pretty I wanted to frame him and put him on my nightstand in a totally non-creepy, non-Hannibal Lector skin-suit-wearing kind of way.”
“I’m a quirky, intelligent, dark-haired chick! Me, me, me, pick me! And who the hell keeps whining and ruining my perfect moment? I will cut a bitch.”
And soo lets cut to a few weeks and BAM!! Clair is pregnant , and Carter is nowhere to be found. claire leaves school and starts to work in a bar to support his son Gavin, but with the help of her friends Lisa and Jim , she find’s her self in new line of work.
“I was going to have to tell people I got fired from selling dildos. I can’t even sell fake cocks to a room full or horny women. How do you come back from that shit?”
While working on the bar one night Carter appears and everything unravels, claire clearly still have feelings for him , so does he for her. but he doesn’t know about Gavin.
Gavin is one of the best things from this book , he is hilarious!! the best child character in years to come
“Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do, watcha gonna do when they cut your wiener,” Gavin sang as he pointed his gun at random objects.
“Wow, cops have gotten pretty hardcore lately” Carter muttered.”
So carter finds him self with new-found parenthood and the love of his life, Claire is starting a new business , a new relationship with no clue on how to navigate this new territory ,while trying to raised a semi normal toddler.
“I had been out of the game for too long. I couldn’t even get drunk and flirt anymore. I could however, get drunk and look like a stroke victim.”
These character are the funniest I have seen in a long time, and the things that they do are just too much to even begin to explain.
The supporting characters are as good as the main ones , i can only conclude that Tara Sivec is a genius !!!
I don’t want to give too much away , and you should know right from the start that this one is a funny story , with little angst and lots of love and friendship, but a bit on the light side of things, so that may be why I gave it 4 and not 5 stars.
I soooo recommend this if you want to have a good laugh and just kick back and relax a bit.
